Overview Electrophysiology Nonlinear Microscopy Calcium Imaging Modelling Image Processing Single Molecules

Research projects

The scope of our laboratory covers a wide range of recent and classical techniques for molecular and cellular studies. All scales from the motility of single molecules to the electrophysiology of whole cells. Special interest in calcium imaging and nonlinear microscopic techniques. Acquisition of experimental data, image processing techniques and automated analysis. In parallel, development of mathematical models...
